Gopro hero 6 wont turn on, just red light on the front

Hey everybody,
I have the following problem: in aome cases like 4 out of 10 times my hero 6 wont turn on. Just the red light on the front goes on. I need to remove the battery or reset the gopro (with pressing the mode button for like 10 sec) after this the camera starts Normal. When the camera is not used for some time (like when i want to turn it on on the morning and the camera wasnt used in thr night).

Cliffnotes:
Hero 6 black
Version 1.6
Camera dont turn on after long time not used
Just red led in the front goes on
Need reset to work peoperly

Ty i advance!

Re: Gopro hero 6 wont turn on, just red light on the front

Hey @twixrider,

 

Sounds like it may be related to a freezing issue with that camera. What SD Card are you using?

 

I would give these steps a go: https://gopro.com/help/articles/solutions_troubleshooting/Camera-Freezes-Up

 

Best,
